Ben and Korian Bradley can't refinance their home in East Brainerd because Chattanooga erroneously placed liens against it for cleanup work done at nearby properties.

What work was done, Chattanooga public works isn't sure. How a lien was placed incorrectly, city attorneys don't know.

The Stormy Hollow and Gentry Road properties that required attention were owned by Crosswinds Properties LLC, a Chattanooga developer that went bankrupt and dissolved in 2006. The properties are now in the possession of a title insurance company.
